Great Smoky Mountains - High Elevation

Tip of the week 

Approach & presentation is the name of the game here. These fish don't often get overly selective on fly patterns, but they spook easily and won't tolerate a bad drift!

Fish upstream, dress in earth-tone clothing, and keep a low profile. Stay back and make longer casts in slow pools. Get closer and keep as much line off the water when fishing pocket water.

Seven-day forecast 

While lower elevation streams will be your best bet this time of year, a forecasted warming trend early next week might provide a decent opportunity for the high country brook trout enthusiast.
